Idea Bank: Explaining Biological Phenomena

The Science Teacher—September 2010

In this Idea Bank, the author provides two classroom activities that integrate argumentation, explanation, and the use of evidence with biology content. The first example fits within an ecology unit; the second works well in one on evolution. These examples not only help students better understand the natural world, but also demonstrate the ever-changing nature of scientific understanding.
